The Sage Responds to Those Who Destroy the Images

it is addressed thusly:
A song.
it reads:
Cast aside, the images made
By human hands? And then to bade
Enter inner spaces, wade
Waist deep in deeper meaning;
This one, who within his snare
Cannot venture, enter there
Words too, for those who dare
Must see about their weaning;
And melody and gesture die
All form and shape, from the eye
Of he who seeks, whom cannot lie
The truer inner darkness?
"But he who truly enters there
knows no merely earthly care"
Our Father said, "but now fair
Returns to earth as spotless."
Then the pen and the voice
The feet, no more a merely noise
Image infers, a glorious guise
An art illuminated.
